Abstract

The rear panel (3) has a lateral frame (4) is linked to the adjacent vehicle roof pillar or pillar cladding (7) through a lever (13) and link (14). The stowage movement of the roof sections (1,2) causes the panel to pivot with respect to the pillar. The roof parts are stowed with their curvature matching that of the rear of the vehicle.

Description

The invention relates to a roof Storage device according to the preamble of claim 1 Art.

Generic devices for hardtop vehicles are z. B. in DE 44 45 944 C1 and also from DE 44 45 580 C1 and DE 195 16 877 C1 knows.

Storage of the roof structure with a front roof part and with a rear roof part that with a fixed Rear window is provided on two different ne species. The pivoting takes place in a simple manner around a main pivot point such that the front roof part and the rear roof part with the rear window in opposite directions arched in the rear of the vehicle. This type of storage has the disadvantage that it increases part of the trunk volume is lost.  

With another storage type, the roof storage is done by Front roof part and rear roof part with the rear window in same direction of curvature. It is clear from this less trunk volume used, but disadvantageous however, it is necessary for this filing che kinematics is relatively complex and sometimes also requires an increase in the rear of the vehicle.

From DE 38 08 910 C2 is a retractable Faltver deck known. Here, when opening the folding ver decks the rear window positively controlled with the folding deck in the storage compartment and when closing the fold moved to the front opening.

The present invention is based on the object the advantages of a space-saving storage of the roof cones structure with the same direction of curvature ten, however, so far in the prior art to avoid existing disadvantages, especially the Ab to simplify laying kinematics.

According to the invention, this object is achieved by the in claim 1 resolved characteristics.

Advantageous further developments of the subject matter of the invention that can be found in the subclaims.

While in the prior art front roof part and rear roof part together with the fixed part Rear window around a main pivot when storing the Turning the roof structure is now according to the invention the rear window is uncoupled from the rear roof part and provided with its own frame. Are on the frame side levers attached, each one turn  point on the vehicle pillar, generally the C-pillar, can be swiveled. That way it is Rear window rotatable separately from the rear roof part and can be done separately when the roof parts are moved be pivoted in the same direction or in the same way cher direction of curvature filed to the front roof part becomes. This means that compared to one against sensible storage, significantly less trunk volume is claimed. This advantageous filing type will through simple kinematics, namely the two side lever and the articulated connection with the Vehicle pillar reached.

In a simple way you can move over with the side Levers connected to positive guidance levers, which in turn turn on the main links are articulated, a positive control or forced movement when storing the roof structure tion, which means that for storing the Rear window does not require its own drive.

Of course it is within the scope of the invention but also possible, if necessary, your own urged to provide for the two side levers if additional levers z. B. lead to space problems the.

The following is an embodiment of the invention described in principle with reference to the drawing.

It shows:

Figure 1 is a side view of the roof structure for a hardtop vehicle with the essential Be actuators in the closed state.

Figure 2 shows a first stage during the laying process of the roof structure.

Figure 3 shows a second stage during the laying process of the roof structure. and

Fig. 4 shows the roof structure in the stored state.

Basically, the roof storage device works for a hardtop vehicle in a known manner, which is why only the parts essential to the invention are discussed in more detail below. The roof structure has a front roof part 1 and a detachably connected rear roof part 2 , which has a rear window 3 with side frames 4 along with sealing parts 5 and 6 and side C-pillars 7 as vehicle pillars. At the rear end, the side C-pillars are each articulated to a main bearing 8 , while at their front ends they each have a main pivot point 9 , to which a hinge 10 for the front roof part 1 is articulated. At the end of the hinge 10 facing away from the main pivot point 9 , one end of a main link 11 is articulated, the other end of which is connected to the main bearing 8 via an intermediate lever 12 .

The frame 4 of the rear window 3 is firmly connected to a He bel 13 , which in the central region of the rear window 3 extends at right angles from the frame and is pivotally connected via a pivot point 14 to the C-pillar 7 or the pillar cladding.

The lever 13 is at its pivot point 14 th end verbun fixed to a positive guide lever 15 , which in turn is turned with its end facing away from the lever 13 to the associated main link 11 .

From Fig. 2 to 4, the laying movement of the roof construction can be seen in principle. By driving the main link 11 via the intermediate lever 12 from a drive device, not shown, the rear window 3 is also forcibly moved via the positive guide lever 15 and the lever 13 at the same time. Due to the arrangement of the levers and articulation points described above, the rear window 3 with its frame 4 is placed separately from the C-pillars 7 , the placement movement being positively guided so that it follows that the rear window 3 with the frame 4 does not rotate backwards, but only performs a slight swiveling movement downwards and backwards, the rear window 3 basically maintaining its direction of storage. In other words: the front or upper seal (sealing part 5 ) remains at the front and the rear seal 6 remains at the rear.

As can be seen from FIG. 4, the front roof part 1 and the rear window 3 are curved in a space-saving manner in the same sense or with the same curvature in the rear area of the vehicle in the stored state. In FIG. 4, a rear window 3 'is additionally drawn in partly in dashed lines in a position which it would have had during a movement according to the prior art. As can be seen, the rear window 3 by the Abla ge according to the invention a considerable amount of space he is enough.
